Ebony Fretboard, Duncan Pickups, Real Floyd Rose,
The Rockingbird has become Synonymous with Paul Crook
Even though he has about 10 other Abstract models
Recently a guitarist with a well known Rock Diva purchased a Rockingbird.
He asked for the Paul Crook model by name.
He brought it on stage and the crowd cheered so much when he played it
He was told he had to switch to something more bland.
It seems The guitar was upstaging the Lead Vocalist.
